Romance:They were told a story of his grandfather getting into Foo right before he was going to propose and then getting back and finding that she was married.Then he married someone in Foo.
Violence:Sabine's shadows attack them and in Leven's dreams.Geth is a toothpick and gets banged up while making himself eyes,an arm,an ear, a mouth, legs and another arm later.At the beginning The shadows are attacking a town.
What I Thought:It took a couple chapters to get started, but then I got drawn in.It is a really good book.It also shows how the hero isn't always heroic.
Rating & Age:4 stars. 11 up.
